Many small states in Europe have recently re-emerged as independent as a result of the break up of the Soviet Union, the dissolution of federations or decolonization and want to join the European Union with its federal/confederal basis. This will have an impact both on the EU itself and on the small states involved.
This book explores Cyprus and Malta's attempt to negotiate membership of the EU from a comparative and 'small state' perspective. It provides a historical overview of Cyprus and Malta's relations with the European Union, analyzing their political and economic aims for joining, the challenges that they face in doing so, the similarities and contrasts in their national perspectives and the way in which their applications are viewed and treated by the EU.
The European Union's Mediterranean Enlargement will be of interest to students and scholars of politics and international relations.
